Choice Pharmacy has taken a proactive step in enhancing its commitment to public health by becoming a registered provider with the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). This designation allows Choice Pharmacy to offer a comprehensive range of diabetes-related products and services, significantly contributing to the well-being and convenience of individuals managing diabetes.

The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is an initiative of the Australian Government that aims to provide access to quality diabetes-related products, information, and support services to people living with diabetes. By becoming an NDSS provider, Choice Pharmacy is playing a vital role in improving the lives of those affected by diabetes.

As an NDSS provider, Choice Pharmacy offers an array of services and products that cater to the needs of individuals with diabetes. Here's a glimpse of what they can provide:

  1. Subsidized Diabetes Supplies: Choice Pharmacy, as an NDSS provider, offers subsidised diabetes supplies, including blood glucose testing strips, lancets, insulin syringes, and pen needles. This makes it more affordable for individuals to manage their blood sugar levels effectively.

  2. Access to Diabetes Information: Choice Pharmacy provides access to valuable diabetes information resources. This includes educational materials, brochures, and online resources that help individuals understand the condition better, make informed decisions about their treatment, and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

  3. Support for Self-Management: Diabetes management involves various aspects such as monitoring blood sugar levels, managing medications, adopting a balanced diet, and engaging in regular physical activity. Choice Pharmacy can offer guidance on all these aspects, helping individuals manage their diabetes effectively and improve their overall quality of life.

  4. Consultations and Advice: Choice Pharmacy's trained pharmacists can offer personalised consultations and advice related to diabetes management. They can discuss medication regimens, potential interactions, and provide practical tips for better adherence to treatment plans.

Registration with the NDSS is free, although persons must be registered by their doctor or a credentialed diabetes educator. To be eligible, persons must be diagnosed with diabetes and hold (or be eligible to hold) a Medicare card and live in Australia.
